Looking to learn from this crowd. Already been in touch with Old Hokie, seems he is a little drive up the road from me.

Birthday gift. COVID 19 quarantine solution to boredom. Goal is to rehabilitate. This won't be a show tractor. I have a goal to parade the kids around for Halloween.

Photos above are just a few if many. This is three days work. I want to tear down the engine, send it off for a machine shop once over.

Get it running right. Brakes good, tires fair.

Need to tighten up steering. Seems I will start with TREs. Anything else to do with the front axle?

Ultimately, may move it to property in VA. Perhaps around the yard workhorse: brushog, around the property people mover, drag/haul things.

I am open to all wisdom here. Please. I have read the 75 tips a few times. Have a digital copy of the service manual. I am watching YT videos. I really get a lot out of videos posted by Jason in PA. Long videos with the process if restoring a '45 2N.

Thanks.

Anyone identify that last picture? It was sitting in the back of the bell housing.

Looks like part of an old starter bendix

Thank you. I don't have the parts manual yet.. I see it would be of good use.

It seems the starter has been rebuilt or replaced. Metric bolts. So it would be a piece for it?

Anyone familiar with Mark Small machine shop in Westminster, Maryland?

I may be dropping the motor off to him.

Took heads, taller cover and manifold off for a peak. All the further I will go. I want them to do the rest.










A piece of metal in the pan.

Homebrew oil pick up tube. Cooper and some brazing of much better quality than the welding at the head.

I split my 8N 2 springs ago for a new clutch et al. A washer identicle to the one in your photo was laying in the bottom of my bell housing as well.

That is a washer from a starter Bendix drive that failed.

Thank you so much!

Seems a lot of work has been done to this tractor to keep it in use. Some good fixes perhaps. Some, arguably, not so good. I hope to erase some of the sins and redeem it!
